  1. planking the boat is a really great idea! I think that I'll try it with my occre albatross that I'm working on at the moment
  2. Well, I think I've got my airbrush working again (it appears that the nozzles on these aztek airbrushes can be quite finicky), but I've run out of thinner. Hopefully I'll be able to get some soon. Sorry for keeping you all waiting
  3. unfortunately, it looks like I'm going to have to put this on hold, as I keep damaging parts of my airbrush. I'll continue once I have some proper materials for cleaning my airbrush, as well as the replacement parts I need.
  4. for the hull, I'm thinking of doing a black base coat, then a few coats of ak heavy chipping fluid, and then my hull colour on top of that to give it a weathered look. I've never done this before, so I would appreciate any advice greatly.
  5. Are there any YouTube videos explaining this technique? Every time I try, a lot of paint ends up bleeding through, and I end up having to do it with a brush Thanks
  6. I've assembled and primed the hull now, but I'll be renting a cottage for the next week, so I'll have to put the model on hold for now. Also, does anyone have a good technique for painting all those tiny details on ship decks, especially for 1/700 scale? I've tried using tiny pieces of tape, but that never seems to work for e, and I always resort to doing it by hand.
  7. I’ve mostly been doing cheap revell and airfix kits, and I’ve never really felt that I needed magnification. Looking at the PE parts in this kit is making me reconsider that.
  8. I have clippers, 2 pairs of tweezers, clamps, sandpaper, and airbrush, and paint and glue .
  9. I’ve taken the hull pieces off the spruce and cleaned them up a bit. It was at this point that I realized that I have to drill some holes in the hull. Unfortunately, that means I’ll have to put this on hold until I can get a drill.
  10. I bought this kit online a few weeks ago, and I’m ready to start building it now. This is the biggest kit that I’ve done so far, and it was relatively expensive, so I want to get it right. I would like to try to add some chipping effects on the hull, and I have some chipping fluid from AK interactive, but I’m not sure about what colour to do the base coat in. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated, and I’ll add some pictures once I have something worth taking a picture of.
